    We did, bought our house 6 months after the wedding. Just make sure you do a budget and only look for houses you can truly afford. We were preapproved for a good deal more than we were comfortable paying, and I’m glad we figured it out and didn’t buy more house than we could afford

    We started looking a month and a half before our wedding date, and I have to say, I don’t recommend it.  Everything became about house shopping and I totally forgot the last minute things I needed to do for the wedding.  We’re 2 weeks from the wedding and Fiance and I made a promise not to talk about the house and focus on the last minute details for the wedding and honeymoon. 

    If you have more time between the date of the wedding and your homeshopping, I would say go for it, but if it’s close, I would now recommend to hold off until after the honeymoon.

    We actually started house-hunting just over a month ago, found a place immediately, made our offer, got accepted, and have been doing all the mortgage/inspection/insurance stuff while wedding planning.  Our closing date is right when we get back from the honeymoon.  It’s been insanely stressful but also awesome.  And since Fiance and I have lived together for two years, I think it’ll feel really special to come home and move into our house together.  Good luck!

    We did both together- planned a wedding and looked for a house.  We ended up closing 2 months after the wedding which was great because it gave us time to recover before moving all of our stuff.
